understand the need to provide recommendations to help you develop and continuously improve controls to monitor future
resources allocated towards your aim of helping and promoting durable solutions for refugees and internally displaced
people, on the basis of humanitarian principles and human rights.
O&Co. audit approach is based on developing a sound understanding of your overall Programme and the financial risks that
